Saturday 10-3-15 6pm ET-
Join us with our guest and co-host, Tom Kyrk of Road Tested Living as we discuss the hottest topics on AskTheTrucker “Live’ Truck Driver Health Open Forum.
Professional drivers are more aware of the dangers of their compromised food supply, the increase in illnesses such as diagnosed diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and increased autoimmune disease.
Because of awareness, truckers are now more concerned and actively involved by taking proactive measures to improve their health.
You know who else has announced they are going to become proactively involved with driver health? The FMCSA. On September 21st and 22nd FMCSA's Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Council ( MCSAC) and the Medical Review Board (MRB) opened up discussion regarding the Health and Wellness of the professional Driver.
Tonight we will discuss this newly announced involved by the FMCSA and determine if becoming involved with truck driver health and wellness is for the earnest regard of the professional driver? Or.... is it to become just one more way the government will become even more involved with driver lives.
We’ll also be discussing , unsafe cookware to avoid in your truck, what kind of diet programs to stay away from, and the new craze on “salts” is there any really any differences?
Be a part of the show tonight. Call in number is 347-826-9170
"Truck Driver Health- The "best" health program for you is.... "
Thursday 6PM ET 347-826-917
As move forward with Driver Health discussions we realize more and more that there is no "one size fits all health program" . If you believe there is, you're setting yourself up for failure.
We can take in all the information we want, but the bottom line is we need to apply knowledge to our lives, and what works for John, may not work for Mary, and yet John and Mary are BOTH improving their health. How could that be?
Although than most people concerned about health will agree to avoid: processed foods, trans fats, GMO's, sugar, soda ,artificial ingredients and chemicals, pesticides, herbicides..... AND to increase organic food, water consumption, exercise,.... There still needs to be that all important consideration of the Person making the change.
So what diet is best? Here's a few choices : Paleo Diet, Vegan Diet, Vegetarian Diet, Raw Diet, Zone Diet, Atkins Diet... and the list goes on.
Join us tonight as Donna Smith of Trucking Social Media and Tom Kyrk of Road Tested Living discuss the absolute BEST health program for YOU... Call us and share how you either have achieved, or are in the process of achieving your goal towards PERSONALIZED optimal health.
Haven't Decided which health program is best for you?
We hope by the time the show is over tonight...... YOU"LL KNOW.

Tonight is a very solemn topic for truckers, Suicide by Truck, discussing the horrible incidents of pedestrians and four-wheelers, who choose speeding trucks as an instrument of their suicide Although the subject matter is not uncommon among veteran drivers, it's not often a preferred topic of discussion in the chat rooms.
A truck driver whose truck has been randomly chosen as the means to anothers' end, may silently struggle for years with the horrific guilt and graphic memories of the incident.
Our guest tonight on AskTheTrucker Live is Carolyn Magner Mason, special contributor for Overdrive Magazine.
Carolyn has recently written the eerily popular “Suicide by Truck” 4 part series for Overdrive Magazine.
Video of 'Suicide by truck' on I-35E in Texas caught on owner-operator's dashcam.

Will you take the steps neccessary to completely change how you approach everything? Will you have the strength to stop looking over your shoulder in defense and look straight ahead into a world of abundance? Zackery Max Driver did and he wants to show you how.
When I was still a child I was placed in the school to prison pipeline and my education was replaced with incarceration. To most my Life story was written down in the books. When I was 20 years old I was sentenced to 89 months in Washington Department of Correction and in the beginning I was functioning from my cultural ego however, the last 4 years of my life incarcerated were jammed packed with beautiful life lessons and spiritual epiphanies. In fact, they have been the genesis of my realization of my TRUE self and awakening of my consciousness.
It seems like yesterday I was an unmotivated, lazy, procrastinating, selfish and sluggish 320 pound mess, lacking confidence and suffering from low self-esteem and the worst of identity crisis. I have overcome these horrific tragedies of life being lived and deep states of unconsciousness. This is why I am 100% sure you will do the same and the very reason why I will give you 300% (100% physical, 100% spiritual and 100% mental) each and every time! I believe in YOU, we can do it! Let’s be the change we want to see in the world!
* I am a Certified Toastmaster (public speaker) and would LOVE to speak at your next event or school about my experiences and the future possibilities I see for our community!
** I am also a Certifiied Master Trainer through the International Sports Science Association. I have a passion for personal training and Life coaching.
